Stapleton to Play Host for Filming of Fast and Furious 6

Stapleton residents may not have to wait long to see Paul Walker or Vin Diesel driving through their neighborhood. Word has leaked from Hollywood that Fast and Furious 6 will be filmed on location in this quiet Denver community. Casting Director Viveck Alaganti stated: “We were looking for sites to shoot the new movie and we came across this special two mile section of Martin Luther King Boulevard between Quebec and Havana streets.” Alaganti further explained “sure, we drive fast in our movies, but these are trained drivers in high end sports cars. Even then, we only hits speeds around 100 miles per hour.  What we saw on MLK through Stapleton easily hit those speeds and it was being done by soccer moms in minivans and Volvos!”

The two mile stretch is perfectly straight, has no elevation gain, and only three stop lights that appear to be optional to most residents. “It makes for the perfect drag strip” said Alaganti.  He even added that they have approached several residents of Stapleton about being stunt drivers in the film. “Quite frankly, our guys are just too scared to drive that fast!.”

No word on the title of the new movie, but some are calling it Fast and Furious 6:  Less Sub, More Burn. Hollywood insiders are being pretty mum on the plot of the new film, but early leaks indicate that the cast has finally left the life of crime behind to move into a nice suburban community.  Paul Walker’s character will have 4 kids (with more on the way), two dogs, a cruiser bike, and will now ride in a minivan complete with nitrous boost and a DVD player for the kids. Fast and Furious 6 will be in theaters in 2013.
